When you’re creating a new Facebook password, you might be wondering what the rules and minimum requirements are for your new password.
A minimum of 6 characters is required.
We tried up to 500 characters and it still worked. So we conclude there is no maximum limit.
You are free to use numbers, letters and punctuation marks and we advise to mix them up, but there are no special complexity requirements.
If you change an existing password, the new one must be different from the last 6 passwords.
To avoid your account from being hacked, your Facebook password should be different from your email password.
Reason: If a hacker finds your password, you can’t recover and reset it by email and everything is lost.
